But first, an actual alley cat in the alleys of Sri Hartamas!

Nazaruddin Abdullah on guitar.

Prawing Aroonratana blocked by a wall of keys!

Jimie Loh with a mischievious 25-year-old’s smile, on bass.

Vocalist Glenville Charles Salay…

…and of course, the iconic David Arumugam!

Here’s another shot of Prawing, using my infrared NEX-5. This is the mixed color look – where it’s infrared and visible light together, because I didn’t think of bringing my infrared pass filters.

Backyard Pub’s tungsten lights are rich in infrared, giving an interesting look!

David John on drums, also shot on infrared, with the red and blue channels swapped.

The Sony A7S, meanwhile, conquered the dark.

Happy Beer-day!

No really, it was their birthdays.

To hear David say “terima kasihhh” in the flesh, is an awesome Malaysian experience.

He’d also play percussion sometimes.

They would weave in and out of rock classics like Creedence Clearwater Revival – Have You Ever Seen The Rain (video above) and Cream – Cocaine, as well as their own classics, Layang-layang Terputus Talinya and Jika Kau Bercinta Lagi. I’m sure there were more, but I only stayed for one set – when Backyard Pub gets very crowded (as when a legendary band like Alleycats performs) my eyes feel a little teargassed by the end of the night.

The A7S with the Sony E 16mm F2.8 pancake! F2.8 barely makes it for the dance floor. EXIF is included in all pictures.

All obviously non-wide shots were shot with the Mitakon/ZhongYi Speedmaster 50mm F0.95. So you get an idea what it looks like on the full-frame A7S as well as the infrared + visible light APS-C sensor NEX-5.
